Dragons 'can go all the way'

Justin Morgan: low note to bow out on

Catalans played very strongly, and if they continue to play like that, then they'll have every chance of reaching the Grand Final.

Hull KR coach Justin Morgan watched his side crushed 56-6 by Catalans in his final match in charge - then tipped the French side to go all the way to the Grand Final.

Morgan said: "It's tough to go out like that, and no one wants to finish like that.

"There are a lot of blokes in there who have got empty feelings and it will make the journey home a lot longer, but we'll give it a few days, then reflect on what we have achieved over the last few weeks and recent months.

"I'm very proud of my time at Hull KR, proud of the players and proud of the position I've been able to hold within the club.

"The nature of sport is that you win some and lose some. Tonight we've lost one, but it is a small part of what has gone before.

"The club will go on to achieve bigger and better things and the people who are leaving will go on to achieve bigger and better things, of that I am sure.

"We didn't have the bounce of the ball in the early exchanges and we lost our discipline and Catalans played very strongly, and if they continue to play like that, then they'll have every chance of reaching the Grand Final."

Dragons coach Trent Robinson insisted he had been taking nothing for granted before the game.

Robinson said: "I don't think we came into the game thinking we would win 56-6, the boys were really on their game tonight.

"Hull KR have been playing really well in recent weeks and they should be applauded for how they've finished the season.

"Tonight was Justin's last game with the club and they played with a lot of heart.


"We had a lot of our footy that came off for us, we played well and we forced their hand a bit and we were powerful.

"I didn't know what we were going to do. It's my first game in semi-finals footy and for a lot of these players it was their first semi-final game too.

"You can prepare as well as you like, but to see that display is very pleasing and you have to praise the players' own personal preparation with what they produced.

"I think I have to give a lot of credit to our middles out there.

"The likes of (Lopini) Paea, (Jamal) Fakir, (David) Ferriol, (Remi) Casty and (Jason) Baitieri all laid a platform for us to go forward and allowed players like Scotty (Dureau) and Thomas (Bosc) to play and create the tries that they did out there. I thought they were awesome."
